My light modern house is a ten minute drive to the Essex estuary coastline. Maldon, with its promenade, and quaint shopping is a great place for a mooch. A place of peace and tranquility. Superb birdwatching and a perfect place to relax, take a boat, or go for long walks. Equally, it is close to the city of Chelmsford, with shops and restaurants, and only an hour from London on the train. Brentwood, famous for the TOWIE lifestyle is a 30 minute drive or train ride away.
